6:02 am
people running? >> one from governor brown and another senator boxer. live in oakland, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> jerry brown will go down as the only person to serve four terms as california's governor. he easily won his second re- election bid yesterday. he also served two terms back in the 1970s. brown won 59% of the new vote to republican neel kashkari's 41%. brown is 76. the oldest sitting governor the united states. brown is calling for bipartisan action at the state capital during his coming term. >> even though i think we are going to have a good solid majority in my party, i'm going to reach across the aisle because to build for the long term you have to include more than just the people who make you comfortable. >> it took brown's challenger only 26 minutes to concede after polls closed. neel kashkari also talked about helping other republicans win their races. >> i'm proud of the small part
6:03 am
we played to help them achieve those goals and will continue to help them. this was always about place every blazing a trail for the future of california and for the future of the republican party and more than anything i am proud of all of you and how we worked together to bring these issues forward. in san jose, it's still not clear who will lead northern california's largest city over the next four years. city council member sam liccardo has a lead of about 2% at this hour over santa clara county supervisor dave cortese. that's steady since the returns started coming in. with provisional ballots to be counted, the vote is too close to call. kiet do has the latest live from city hall. >> reporter: good morning. even though all the precincts have been reporting and accounted for, there are still too many provisional mail-in and absentee ballots out there making this race too close to call. san jose city council member

6:05 am
city for that matter. both candidates kept it upbeat last night. we are hearing that an unknown number of absentee ballots were dropped off at the registrar of voters last night. they were locked up and not counted overnight. so again, the race is still too close to call. >> there were a number of hard fought races for city council seats yesterday. how will the outcomes of those contests affect the battle over pension reform? >> reporter: yes. there were three open council seats last night all three of them held previously by reform -- police reform supporters. one of those seats went to a labor backed candidate, the other to an independent. so it looks like pension reform does not have as much support as it used to here in the city council of san jose. live, kiet do, kpix 5. city councilman tom butt appears to have won the richmond's mayor's race. he earned 51% of the vote and fellow city councilman nat

kpix 5. in oakland an overwhelming vote to raise minimum wage. 81% approved the measure to raise oakland's minimum wage from $9 an hour to $12.25 an hour. that will start in march. and in san francisco, voters also decided on a pay hike for those making the minimum. prop j passed by a 77-23% margin. it needed a simple majority to pass. and boy, did it ever. and the minimum wage in san francisco will gradually increase to $15 an hour by the year 2018. it's currently $10.74. it will go up to $11.05 on january 1. down in san jose, still not clear who will lead northern california's largest city over the next four years. sam liccardo has a lead of about 2% over santa clara county supervisor dave cortese. that small gap has been pretty steady since the first returns were unveiled last night. but with a lot of provisional ballots to be counted, this runoff is still too close to

of about 213,000. construction did very well adding 28,000 jobs, also manufacturing posted a solid gain around 15,000. the labor department reports its october jobs report in just two days. and most economists are looking for a gain around 230,000 jobs. unemployment rate fell to 5.9% in the month of september a multi-year low. the stock market is moving high they are morning following the election. looking at new record territory for the dow and s&p today. lots of earnings news playing a role including several bay area firms. big winner palo alto's jives software and the losing side of things milpitas-based fire eye network security vendor also jamba based out of emeryville, the juice maker saw its earnings down a bit. let's check the board and see how we are doing so far this morning. dow is up by 43. nasdaq just pulling negative now down a point. s&p up by 5. shares in jive software up 13% while jam what down 6% and fire eye is taking

[ laughter ] >> all right. now, i want to you get to the bay bridge. they are clamping down on the metering lights so slowly. there's been an accident now just past treasure island where there's no shoulder on the bridge. so this may take a while to clear. two lanes are blocked now heading into san francisco. but look, traffic is barely budging heading to the toll plaza. and again they are just trying to limit the amount of cars on the bay bridge because it is beginning to stack up just before the accident. we are not sure about injuries at this point. it was just reported within the last five, 10 minutes so again the bay bridge looks to be a
6:48 am
growing hot spot right now. we'll show you what it looks like through the macarthur maze. westbound 580 very slow right now through 24. but check out the sensors. we are seeing unusual backups now all across the span because of that accident reported just past again the island just past the tunnel. if you want to ride bart so far everything is on time. no delays on bart. ace train on time. ferries, everything else is on time. just a quick note about something happening later on this morning in san francisco. if you can believe it we are already talking about the ice skating rink over at union square. they are breaking the ice on the 2014/2015 season so there may be extra crowds gathered in the area. the opening ceremony again kicks off at 9:30. that's your latest "kcbs" drive to work. your forecast now, here's lawrence. we're headed right to the holidays can you believe that? >> yes. >> it is crazy. out the door today, we are going to see some very warm temperatures. starting out a little cool this morning if you are stepping outside in the 40s on the 50s. but with high pressure overhead and the offshore winds, that will combine to really warm
6:49 am
things up nicely. in fact, these temperatures are going to be running a good five to 10 degrees above the average. about 78 degrees in livermore. 76 in san jose. and 73 degrees in san francisco. plenty of sunshine all the way to the coast today and after a cool start it will likely be the warmest day of the week and even after some minor changes looks like sunny nice weather all the way into the weekend. high pressure sit overhead sending all the energy from these storms well to the north of us so we are going to keep things dry. plenty of sun to the coastline. in fact, the monterey bay area looking beautiful today heading there. 75 degrees. 76 in sacramento. 63 degrees in lake tahoe. those offshore winds are blowing now just a weak offshore keeping the clouds away but tomorrow more of a sea breeze kicking in. that will bring some clouds back to the coast and cool down your temperatures near the coast and just inside the bay. numbers for today should be something else though. about 75 in milpitas. 74 degrees in fremont. 74 also in san mateo and about 72 in half moon bay. east bay numbers in the mid- to
6:50 am
upper 70s this afternoon. and looks like inside the bay talking 74 in alameda 75 in san leandro and 70 degrees in daly city. slightly cooler tomorrow especially along the coastline and inside the bay. looking sunny and bright for the next five to seven days. that's the latest forecast, guys. back to you. all right, lawrence, thank you. you may recall a story we ran earlier this week about a candidate who sent more than $300,000 of his own money to win a seat on a water district board. looks like the campaign has paid off for millionaire gary kremen. he has a 3-point lead over incumbent brian schmidt in santa clara valley water district 7. tuesday's election results will bring a big shift in the balance of power in our state legislature. and voters in berkeley have made their city the first in the nation to impose a tax on soda and other sugary drinks. political analyst melissa griffin-caen joins us now to talk about the likely impact. good morning. >> good morning, guys. >> this is going to have big implications nationally i think because other cities might pick
6:51 am
it up? >> reporter: that's right true. berkeley was the forefront of the anti-tobacco campaign to sort of make restaurants have no smoking sections and i mean, this is back in 1977. so they can be on the vanguard of things but most important and the most immediate result of this though is that now we have a united states city that actually has a beverage tax. all the studies that pro and con have been relying on so far are international studies because we have never had a u.s. city actually do this. so now they have a laboratory where we'll be collecting data. the data from that is going to be very, very important going forward in determining whether or not other american cities are going to say yes this is going to have a desired impact. so that's a main thing to look for. >> does the fact that the soft drink industry spent heavily against this measure mean they were worried? >> reporter: that they were worried and also not just that they were worried it would have implications nationwide but that they were worried they would have aching in the or mar. something very powerful about being able to say we are
6:52 am
bulletproof. we have 100% success rate at killing these measures. now they cannot say this. this is a bit of aching in the armor so that was one of the -- a chink in the armor and that's one of the reasons they spent so heavily to defeat it. >> the measure in san francisco failed. how come? >> reporter: the reason it didn't pass in san francisco is because it needed a two-thirds majority because if you have a tax that's going into a particular bucket, in this case san francisco our little sort of health and welfare for children bucket, that vote needs two-thirds majority. in berkeley because all of the funds from the beverage tax will go to the general fund, then they only needed a simple majority. so if you look at san francisco, 55% of voters so far are endorsing this beverage tax. so we might see in the future while we didn't see a two third majority this time if they restated the ballot measure to make it a general fund measure like berkeley, it would have passed. so that's something we may see in the future here in san francisco. >> all right.
6:53 am
let's talk gop now. making national headlines. >> reporter: they are having a great day. >> mr. president not so much. >> reporter: the president has seen better days. in california, the republicans don't appear to be winning any of the statewide races. controller, secretary of state, treasurer, of course the lieutenant governor and governor. they are not winning. but they blocked a supermajority in the state senate. and otherwise actually again nationally had a really great night. [ pause ] >> it was an exciting day. any surprises that you say the sweeping changes going from blue to red or what? >> reporter: nationally? >> nationally or here locally? >> reporter: well, i have to say propositions 45 and 46 were so interesting because initial polls showed them overwhelmingly favored. and then you saw the sort of onslaught of advertising from doctors and insurance groups and now they lost dramatically. i mean, the shift from where they began to where this ended up on election day is us. >> incrediblably dramatic.
